Kalenjin community ignores Mututho’s call for female running mate in 2017
Members of the Kalenjin community are yet to offer a female running mate to Nakuru governor aspirant John Mututho. The former Naivasha MP had asked the community early this year to field 12 female candidates for vetting, saying the best would be picked as his running mate while the other top five will get executive jobs in his government.
“I want a graduate running mate aged between 21-35 years, from the Kalenjin community. The elders should select the 12,” he told the Star earlier this month.
Both elders and youths termed the call as unnecessary asking him to pick a running mate of his choice. Nakuru Governorship aspirants who have not yet picked running mates include Lee Kinyanjui and Senator James Mungai.
